My work engages with issues around cultural identity and notions of the body beauty in a patriarchal society, and often draws from my own culturally divided background between Switzerland and Ecuador.

Originally from Ecuador, I have been based in Switzerland since 2001, where I studied Visual Arts at the F+F School of Art and Design in Zurich and my Master in Contemporary Art Practices in Performance Arts at the Arts University of Bern -Switzerland. Through selfies, videos, paintings, interviews, performance, sculpure, photography, installation and objects, I explore the often paradoxical perceptions of my own body as a (hyper-sexualized) woman, foreigner and migrant in a patriarchal society.
My master thesis (Idolon) was a three years long research about my relation to social media (selfies), the relation of the other on the selfie, from the digital to the real, what is real?

Since 2018,

I have been working on a project about woman and love in a patriarchal society. Why and how woman have the necessity of taking care and giving love, specially to street cats in Greece. Through my own body (photo – performances), I reflect about national identity, the representation of woman in art history, the representations of woman and cats (witch trials, woman and cats where consider the representation of evil) in a patriarchal system.
